bought a dress from primarni empire style with side zip need an extra inch for my norks as otherwise it fits perfectly have lot of excess fabric i can use which matches so can anyone give me a step by step please
i don't know how to do this but totally sympathise with your large "norkage" i have the same problem and find dresses a nightmare especially as they are always too big on the back if they fit on the front IYSWIM.
agree that it would be so much easier to get a larger size, and make it beautifully tailored. Any attempt to make something bigger round the bust would be more likely to make a nice dress look not-so-nice; whereas taking something in would be easy and it looks like plenty of us can make suggestions
BTW, if you are going to swap to get the bigger size, then just for now make use of the one you've got at the mo, and measure anywhere that you think will be useful and where it fits perfectly - under bust, length, distance between straps or length of straps or whatever. that would make your tailoring job easier as you have a set of measurements to go with
